FEWEST UPDATES OF ANY APP. ALL VODS CRASH! FORMAT CONSTANTLY CHANGES W/O WARNING. 😠 Videos, all videos on demand crash. And live? Love CBSTHIS MORNING like I do? Tough luck. You won't see it. Only the droll, CBSN ad nauseum. Customer support is non-existent. I've written, submitted many E-mails over a 2yr period. Also, the developers change their minds weekly on format: you may see weekend shows live, or, not. Another week, played twice, another week, repeatedly into the evening. Another week, not at all. 1 ad plays over & over when VOD does work.
Chromecast support? Sad that this is glaringly missing Chromecast support. At least Google makes it so that we can cast the entire phone or tablet to the TV screen. The best mainstem news that delivers fairly excellent news is definitely Reuters. I used to think people were crazy saying that the news is biased and full of propaganda and fluff, but it really does seem like news is full of misdirection and fluff news😕
Needs Chromecast support App seems to be getting worse. Stops in middle of streams. Takes forever to start streams. Gets hung while trying to start and won't let you back out of it. Whatever cross platform framework you're using CBS drop that crap and build a native app. And then add Chromecast support and stop blocking it on your website. It's the best selling streaming device out there. Support it. Only hanging around now as a way to watch a major breaking story.
CBS=could be savvier It's okay when it works, but the news feed is too often irrelevant to my concerns. I wish I could tailor it more to my interests.
Bad filler between streaming segments CBS has this "song", melody just 1 bar long, repeated over in groups of four, this drivel really is a bore. With a catalog so full of good, I wonder why they serve bad food, that numbs the mind to inert state, with singer lame I've grown to hate. It would be better to have no sound at all between the streaming sections.
Not my kind of news! A slick app to be sure, but the content is repetitive, sometimes ridiculous and clearly targeting viewers who like entertaining tidbits rather than in-depth news. Some of the "news personalities" are more gossipy toned than credible, delivering a steady diet of air chatter with little new serious information.
